eBook: NoNonsense Legalizing Drugs by Steve Rolles
It is time to take control. Legalizing drugs does not mean a free-for-all. It involves ensuring that substances are safe and taking distribution out of the hands of the criminal networks who currently benefit from an illegal market with a turnover of $320 billion a year.
This book is not just a litany of the damage done over the past four decades of drug war - it assesses the careful, progressive attempts at reform by some governments and, more important still, it looks forward to examine exactly how legalized drugs will be produced, distributed and regulated in future. The change is going to come - but this book will put you well ahead of the curve. Reviews: 'I commend this book to you, and encourage all who read it to join the movement for change and help to end the ruinous war on drugs.' - Cesar Gaviria, former president of Colombia, and member of the Global Commission on Drugs 'This book brings a welcome dose of pragmatic realism to a debate long dominated by misplaced idealogy and knee-jerk politics.' - David Nutt, Edmond J Safra Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London Paperback: 144 pages Publisher: New Internationalist (May 2017) Language: English ISBN: ESBN: Dimensions: 18cm x 11cm
